What’s Good About Being Sick?

28 Aug

What’s good about being sick?

Being currently in the concluding stages of influenza, I can vouch: very little. Sickness is a blight: it richly deserves its abysmal reputation.

Apart from all the discomfort and misery it brings by virtue of symptoms, it carries with it an additional burden: inability to work. Result? A huge backlog of toil, ready and waiting for the victim’s recovery. Something to look forward to?

Seriously, though, there is something positive in the sickness experience. How absolutely wonderful it is to get well! A simple treat becomes magnified in its enjoyment.

Life is good!
